Subject: Re: The Shadow of the Shadow of the SILENT Majorities

yup 's awfull quiet here so I thought I'd jump in with both feet - I just
bought _The Gulf War did Not Happen_ I thought Paul Patton's intro hit the
nail on the head in his critique of Chris Norris's critique of
postmodernism (accusations of nihilism) looks like Norris totally missed
the point that B was making over the mediation (and orgy of media) standing
in the way of making sense of the Gulf War. Of course what worries me in a
sense is that the counter-reading might suggest that B thought that maybe
without all the hype there would be a way of getting at some sense of the
reality of the war... any thoughts? I also have Simulations (I'm guessing
that is the Sim &Sim yer refering to?) and yup I'm a taker fer that one

Cheers, Jerry
